The Ministry of Human Resource Development, Government of India and Central Board of Secondary education (CBSE), New Delhi introduced the national level common entrance exam called Joint Entrance Examination (JEE).
JEE Main examination was being conducted by the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE) till 2018. From 2019 onwards, the Joint Entrance Examination (JEE) Main is going to be conducted by the National Testing Agency (NTA).
JEE will be conducted by NTA twice a year for admission to Undergraduate Engineering Programmes in NIT's, IIIT's and other Centrally Funded Technical Institutions.
The Joint Entrance Exam will be conducted in two parts, JEE Mains and JEE Advanced. JEE (Main) replaces the AIEEE entrance exam and JEE (Advanced) replaced the IIT-JEE entrance exam. Around 25220 seats Engineering and Architecture seats are filled every year on the basis of JEE Main Score.
The aim of the common entrance test has been mooted to reduce stress on students, who have to appear for multiple entrance examinations and to give greater relevance to the school education, especially the class 12 board examinations.
There will be no change in the pattern of the examination and the registration process will begin in September 2018. The exam is held in multiple sessions in online mode.
